major pharmaceutical. we use veritas netbackup a client is on a w2k server, where jobs appear to be queued. the actual job appears to be run on a ...nix server (HP_UX), as the logs always refer to tar.
If Veritas backup depends on accessing Windows over SMB or other mounted volume methods - I don't believe you'll have a reliable method of backing up these files.
For example, using the open-source "Bacula" Enterprise backup the
Windows client being backed up actually makes a static "snapshot"
volume of the entire disk and then backs up all the files, including the locked
ones. The static snapshot system is called "VSS" in Microsoft terminology, and
currently works on Win2003 server and WinXP clients.
